Re: Brake hose not sealing to caliper - Clio MK2 Rear Disc

Your link is of the standard type flexi pipe that some models use. Most likely for body to axle.

Your brakes need a flexi near the caliper to allow caliper removal without disturbing the brake lines.

If you can get hold of a new pipe nut, you could try winding it in to the hole a few times in the hope it remakes the original thread.
It might allow you to get your nut back in straight.

Not much else you can do.

Don't bodge anything to do with brakes, it ain't worth the risk.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
